factors in considering secondary land use? what should be our primary or secondary use? do you want to have food? do you want to have a playground? how do we weigh in and make some judgments on that? and what about properties with no primary utility purpose? do we hang on to them? do we look at them as a future needs, or what? we created some categories underneath each one of these questions, so when you look at keefe factors, its compatibility with utility needs, if there is a primary purpose, is it compatible? you do not want a gas station next to your reservoir. that is not something that would be compatible. the economic impact to the ratepayers. it should not be that the rate payers are subsidizing that use. it should be standing on its other. it should create a liability question for you. it should open it up to some sort of long-term. your priorities, whether or not it is for other things, and finally, is this a permanent use, or does it have an exit strategy? if you need to take this property for utility purpose sometime in the future, i am not talking five years from now, m

that bill. white house correspondent dan lothian is traveling with the president and joins us live from pittsburgh. hi, there, dan. is the president preparing for the possibility that his jobs bill may not pass today's test in the senate? >> reporter: it it does appear that he is. in fact, he's meeting with his jobs council and a short minute ago he was asked about this and the president responded, saying, he doesn't know how congress will respond to the overall jobs bill but the expectation is that if in fact they don't pass it, as one entire piece, that it would be broken into parts. they would certainly push for the infrastructure component of that and then pressure would be applied later to get all of those other pieces done. but what the white house really wants is for this whole package to be taken up in one piece because they believe that's the only way to really get the economy going to create the kinds of jobs that the president would like to see. >> and when you look at this package, dan, we're talking $447 billion. one of sticking points is obviously taxing the rich. they do
, and it has carried us to our destination. have you ever wondered how elevators were -- work? we check out the need outside the elevator using current technology and we learn about the latest destination elevated technology all here in san francisco. we will also visit the machinery where all the behind- the-scenes gears control these incredible machines. we are very fortunate today to have an expert with those who is going to walk us are around elevators in san francisco. can you tell us about the history of elevators in san francisco? the measure -- >> sure. the history of elevator technology evolves with the city. first elevators were installed for moving materials in the 1860's. in the 1870's, the first passenger elevator was installed, and that allowed building heights to go up to about seven floors. starting in the 18 eighties, 1890's, the first electric elevators were installed. that allowed for buildings to go up even higher, even more than 10 floors, and those were the first elevators that became representative of what we consider modern elevators today. >> so the height of buildi
to thank you for allowing us to be here to talk about the energy retrofit programs they have been allowing us to do. it was a really simple goal. it was federal stimulus money, and the goal was to do something long term that was good and the other goal was to make sure we spend the money quickly and got jobs we were creating. what is great is we accomplished both. we wanted to celebrate that today. the city already provides about 100% clean natural gas -- not natural gas. back that up. the city provides greenhouse gas free, 100% renewable energy. what is different is we're saying now that we provide that energy, we should always still be conserving, all we still be looking at energy efficiency opportunities, and that is what we're doing. this is one of 10 sites in the city including other cultural centers, health centers, where we took this money and really changed the behavior of what is happening in those buildings. we are here to celebrate that work. we had $3 million of this money from the stimulus funds. we are updating fluorescent let's -- lance and replacing them with modern efficie
in order to prevent irreversible harm to the climate. to help us make that transition there's no shortage of water and sewage pipe lines that need to be fixed or replaced bridges and tunnels in need of emergency repairs and transportation infrastructure that needs to be renewed and developed. there are jobs that can be created in the energy conservation and upgrading the grid maintaining and expanding public transportation. jobs that can help us reduce air pollution coming greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency. it's past time for major new deal type public investments in infrastructure modernization and repair, energy conservation and climate protection as a means of putting people to work and leaving the foundation for a more sustainable economic future for the united states. this is just sound science and sound economics. increasing our reliance on the tar sands would take us in the opposite direction. thank you.

of real estate who helped us in many of our meetings. we made several presentations along the way to check in as we were working on the document. so the court policies and new acquisition policies are one, a focus on areas that are open space deficient to acquire properties that have identified funding for purchase development and maintenance, so properties that have identified funding to fund the purchase, which is the acquisition, fund the development of turning whatever the property is into a park if it is not already park-like, and to pay for maintenance are also priority in a policy. properties that encourage a variety of recreational open space uses are also a priority. i can go into a little more detail in this topic, but briefly, properties that are high needs use basically the following four principles -- that it is in area that has high population. a lot of people live there in a ratio to the amount of open space. places with a high percentage of children and seniors, carriers were households are categorized as low-income. we know that when people have less resources, they often

the terrorist threat they focused on. >> absolutely. the information we are receiving into us that say that sources confirm the case started when one of the men, the iranian americans made contact with an under cover dea informant and asked for assistance from a mexican drug cartel to assassinate the am bass tor. this is what sources are telling us at this hour. you can tell us any information you might have on the saudi diplomats, the saudi ambassador to the united states? >> he's a prominent spokesman in saudi government and very well recognized and very well respected in washington, d.c. whether you are part of the government or sympathetic, there is no doubt he was at the jurvethure of a lot of worlds that are critical and for that matter he makes a good target. it's not a secret that the saudi government shares concerns about iranian interest in that region and the saudis and iranians have clashed over a number of different issues including what's going on in bahrain and the struggle between the government protest in bahrain to the sovereignty of particular islands in the persian
to help give us the information and make a decision on. each one of those stars represents when it was before the commission as an individual item. we have also identified this in broader manners. this has been going on since 2003. we would like to make a decision as to whether this is worth pursuing or not. there is a quick summary of the costs. the total costs have been about $2.3 million. half of which was from a grant from the department of water resources. our partners have contributed $183,000. this is roughly equivalent to the amount of dollars that we have contributed. going back into the history, the feasibility study was to identify project objectives, goals, for each agency. we have identified among the agencies 22 potential sites and it goes down to 13th feasible sides and we ended up with three sites to be evaluated. one near the east and the bridge, one on the ocean side of san francisco. the feasibility studies, we identified conveyance options or how we can move water around. this is based on reliability, public this happens, and public acceptance of cost. we hav
here in the region, we've seen a deterioration in the relationship between the u.s. and saudi arabia, a chilling effect going on, because the saudis saw the u.s. as supporting the revolutionary movement in egypt and they don't like revolutionary movements going on in this region. >> we will wait and see. thank you very much. >>> thank you very much. we will continue -- wolf blitzer will continue this coverage, very serious story with clearly international implications, "the situation room with wolf blitzer" starts right now. >> brooke, thanks very much. >>> happening now, breaking news. an alleged iranian plot to assassinate the saudi ambassador to the united states. two men now charged. one is due in court this hour. >>> we're also following reaction this hour from tehran to riyadh to the white house and beyond. our correspondents around the world are standing by. and the united states is vowing to hold inner accountable, but how? we're working all angles of this major breaking news story right now. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." we're also awaiting a state
use policy framework is very important. there may be liability issues, and if we cannot build a trail which has ada access, then what are we getting into, so maybe we do not want new parks? but we do want them, so how do you balance that? they have looked at the criteria. another thing that occurs to me is that the puc, both wastewater enterprise and water enterprise has a lot of property -- it is bifurcated, and there are issues with dpw. dpw also has their corporation yard, not far away, but these are sort of does contiguous properties. -- discontiguous properties. to cluster. as we are looking at rebuilding southeast, i will dig up some correspondence from a few years ago, whether it is merced manner or the various reservoir s at permittees sidewalks can be used more for passive recreation. we can be a better neighbor. this is a good initial discussion. president vietor: thank you. any comments? any comments on this item? >> thank you for your comments. just real quickly because i do not want to overdo it on this item, but we said something about public works. we do not hav
an assassination plot, which the u.s. says was cooked up by elements, quote, inside the iranian government. what that means is a subject of wild speculation at this hour. whatever it was, it was a plan to attempt to kill the saudi ambassador to the united states on u.s. soil, and it includes the planned use of bombs and a foiled murder-for-hire plot that involves an opium deal with a mexican drug cartel. can't make it up, and it is, indeed, both terrifying and perplexing all at the same time. we begin with nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. pete, we heard the attorney general say this was intended to be an opening act of a broader plot. what, exactly, is the quality of the information that we have that is tying this to whether it's the iranian government, the mexican drug cartels, and all the players that are sort of being whipped around right now. >> reporter: well, just those players that we know of. and it's a very straightforward line, according to the government. they say this whole plot was cooked up in the spring of this year, and the central character is a man named monsieur
, with confidential sources working with the u.s. government. >> the complaint alleges this conspiracy was conceived and was sponsored from iran constitute a flake rapt use of international and u.s. law. >> reporter: reading from the pages of a hollywood script, the impact would have been real and many lives would have been lost. >> al-zabar was arrested on september 29th at jfk airport, new york city, and while the indictment was clear today saying the assassination was rooted in the differences between the irany and saudi government, the attorney general today, though, stopped short of saying that this plot had the direct blessing of the top iranian government officials itself, though. he did sate u.s. will take unspecified action against iran, and late this afternoon, the state department did begin imposing sangs on four individuals involved in financing parts of this plot. >> tom, at this point, have we had any response yet from iran? >> reporter: predictably, shawn, the iranian government dismissed it calling it a child story saying there was no credibility whatsoever. the u.s. was quick in tan
across the u.s., and this week we are going to look at some other perspectives on the issue of lightsquared. now joining us is representative paul broun. he is the chairman of the science-based technology subcommittee on investigations. congressman broun the recently held a hearing around lightsquared. what was that hearing about and what did you learn? >> guest: and we have been trying to get information from lightsquared because the information that we have been able to ascertain does far is that this ground-based broadband network that lightsquared wants to put in place is being fast-tracked through the fcc and this administration is pushing the fcc to approve lightsquared's spectrum which is right adjacent to all the gps spectrum. everything we hear from all experts is that the spectrum if it is ground-based is going to interfere with everybody's gps in their cars. it is going to interfere also with the highly technical gps's that the science community utilizes and the aviation community utilizes an particularly that the military uses so the high percentage of gps probab
-- again, 3/16. this used to be called -- again, the old term was crystal. if you talk to somebody my age, they would say -- because 3/16 was always poured glass and always crystal. they didn't do a twin ground. so it is the same thing as the quarter inch. and you still see it around because they put it in where they're trying to lighten a way. you want to put it in a window so it's not so heavy on a double-hung. it's a good product, but again, you know. you know, it's like window glass, you just have to hit it just a little harder. plate glass, same way. you know, this is what essentially was in i-magnum. this is what's in the mills building. this is what's in the rust building. this is what's in th in the hurt building. there's putty around them. they're going to shift. the wood kind of comes and goes. so it takes quite a bit to break a piece of plate because -- i mean you can -- this will take quite a bit of vertical weight but if it gets bound or whatever, you know, if you just get it in the wrong spot, that's what happens. >> we're seeing some major high rises going up near the bay b
to answer what you made a pitch for the nominee former attorney general to be confirmed. 44 of us have sent a letter, you're very familiar with, to the president's biggest and i think you said to me to spend if i could finish. we haven't heard one word about that, asking for some modifications to this. it's not the nominee. i think the nominee as far as i know is probably well-qualified, very honorable, very smart man. but we are waiting for that dialogue, and i hope we hear from you. but short of that i think the nominee is not going anywhere. but i want an answer to that. go ahead. >> i understand your position and we received that message. you've been very clear about it and you have a pretty powerful show of strength. i would just encourage you to reconsider because i think that -- >> we hope you would reconsider, u.n. the president, changing three modest things in the dodd-frank bill. if you do i'm sure we'll have a good piece of legislation, at least a better peace. and we'll go from there. but short of that i don't believe that we are moving that nomination. >> i'm always optimistic.
, saying, you know, "don't drink, don't use tobacco products." you need to have the prevention to keep... to keep these risk factors either away or down to a minimum with youth. show alternative ways to spend your time, i think that is probably the ideal thing. and prevention is probably a lot easier since you aren't already addicted to anything, then having to quit later and going to rehab. like i always say, i don't want to do that. i want to finish school and go to college. in this club you get to help people and you get to tell people what things not to do, like i have experience with background, like with drugs and stuff, and i don't want to go down that road. i want to go down a different road. so that's why i am in this group. as a community we are after the same goals and knowing that we can work together and we can bring positive change to the community is always very rewarding. dr. greene, going back to screening and brief interventions, are there certain competencies that need to be highlighted while trying to implement that program? definitely. the cultural competency piece
area that own sites have to -- have to have agreements to allow motorola to use the sites and we're working on those agreements right now. second thing, the authority has to adopt a system funding plan and endorse the boom agreement. we're getting to, like i said, getting to the end of the negotiating of that agreement so the authority will have to endorse that agreement and it will go out to for member approval and each has the opportunity to approve or dace prove or recommend changes to the agreement. and finally the goal is to have all of the member agencies sign on and have bay ricks actually execute a final boom agreement by december 6. i failed to mention the gran the -- grant that motorola has, has an aggressive time line. they're stimulus grants so the idea is get the money out there and get people hired and get jobs created sooner rather than later. so we are under a deadline to build the system and that is why we're working very hard to meet these deadlines and to fit the time line so that motorola can begin building the system and get it built within the very narrow ti
wanted everybody to give us input before the october 17th meeting. tell us what you think of it. >> i didn't get a copy of it, i don't think. i didn't see it in my mailbox. president mendoza: can we get them resent? thank you. commissioner yee? vice president yee: i wanted to make an announcement that we had a meeting yesterday, the joint committee, and the reason why i want to make the announcement is because i won't be here to report it at our next meeting. and so but i do want to say that the two items of the three that were on the agenda i heard and i have paperwork. i would recommend actually that for one of our educational discussion pieces that we have our staff and maybe invite city college also to talk about the bridge to success program, because it's really interesting. they have a lot of great data that is worth looking at and the nice thing about it is that there's a real collaboration between the two institutions in using stafford to share the data so if anybody's interested, i have it. president mendoza: thank you for that information. >> the budget and program committee
. it is important for us to have that discussion. with that, that concludes my reports unless there are any questions? >> review of past week event, the board of supervisors, and historic preservation commission. >> good afternoon, commissioners. this week the board of supervisors did take action on a number of planned use items i would like to share with you. the first was an ordinance before the land use committee. this was called acts of god and calamity ordinance. this would revise our control for rebuilding non-conforming uses, and you did consider it on july 14 of this year. you recommended a couple of changes to the ordinance. first, you thought the ordinance as drafted provided too much flexibility, so you wanted to increase flexibility for those that did experience clarity -- calamity, but within certain bounds. you recommended extending the time line and recommended submitting a building permit would start the process moving. you also recommended adding a retroactive date. supervisor cohen made those recommendations, and she also made another recommendation. they had a similar par
